I had a great time Friday watching barn swallows circling, diving, twirling and doing all the wonderful things barn swallows do. No wonder they call them aerialists. These young ones were hanging out near a ditch full of water that was swarming with insects, which probably explains why they seemed to be enjoying themselves so much. They seemed to be taking turns landing on the little bridge, resting for just a second, then diving off again. Click on picture to enlarge.
